Input the Pins’ name Only

  1. Using the NE555 timer as an example: this device is available in a DIP8 package so select DIP. Then enter the NE555 pin names into the Pin Names text box separated by new line or space, Then press OK. Abracadabra! As if by magic, you will find a perfectly formed dual in line 8 pin symbol for the NE555 attached to your mouse cursor, ready to be placed! You just need a few seconds to build a NE555 symbol, quickly and easily.
